Ah, so it’s not just me then! I thought it might have been my pc, but it doesn’t happen on other sites.
Another weird one is copying text from an Ebay thread, and when using ‘paste’ then changing to sloping letters (italics?) I can’t highlight them all and change to that font, I have to highlight say five letters, change them the next five or six or whatever, and it’s taking ages :(

I've just installed this extension and am pleased to report that it seems to do what it says and restores the photobucket images that are usually blocked.

Here is the equivalent for Chrome, but I hate Chrome with the fiery passion of a thousand burning Vauxhalls so haven't tested it.

Working on the presumption you're using a device that uses the regular forum view, rather than Tapatalk etc...

 

1. Choose your victim. For example - https://www.ebay.co....pkAAOSwlpZaXNeG

 

2. Choose the pic you want to post up, right click and select "Copy image address" or whatever your browser calls it.

 

Capture.PNG

 

3. Go to the thread you want to post in, and start typing out your reply. Then hit the "Image Icon". You can identify the image icon by looking for the icon that looks like an image.

 

Capture2.PNG

 

4. Paste in the address you copied earlier, then give the "OK" button a tickle. 

 

Capture3.PNG

 

5. Now comes the tricky part, so watch closely. Click the image of the top motor you've just pasted in, and highlight that mother. Then you want to click on the "LINK" button. Simple as peas.

 

Capture4.PNG

 

6. Time to make the magic happen. NOW - click back to your favorite internet auction site and copy the URL of the advert out of the address bar.

 

Capture5.PNG

 

7. Back to Autoshite, and paste all that lovely text into the URL field. Don't go worrying about the Link type or protocol - that'll handle itself when you paste your link in 9 times out of 10. If it doesn't work, make a new post about how this never happened when Dave was in charge, and how the site isn't as good as it used to be.

 

Capture6.PNG

 

8. So now you've got an image of the worst vehicle known to man, and a link to ebay so sadists can bid on it. But no post would be complete without a quote from the ad to show what a fuckin div kid the vendor is, would it? Back to your ad ... find the offending text, highlight it, then right click and copy it...

 

Capture7.PNG

 

9. Back to autoshite. You're getting the hang of this now.. big up the quote button, then paste in the vendors bullshit.

 

Capture8.PNG

 

10. Add in your top BANTZ comment

 

Capture9.PNG

 

11. You're ready to rumble. Hit post, then sit back and wait for the likes to roll in. Once you collect 150 likes you can trade them in for a free Calippo or Mini Mllk at the front desk.

 

PRO TIP - Drink loads of lovely booze before searching the classifieds (or posting up a HOW TO) just to get your eye in.

 

If you're posting on mobile or whatever then good luck, that's outside my remit. There's probably an easier way to do all this faff, but that's how I do it.

You can make the above somewhat simpler and quicker by doing the following:
 
[url=https://path/to/ebay/listing][img=https://path/to/ebay/img.jpg][/url]
Edit: got my bbcode a bit wrong. Corrected now.

Edit 2: apparently not. My edit will not save. How odd. Correct code should be
 
[url=https://path/to/ebay/listing][img=https://path/to/ebay/img.jpg][/url]
Edit 3: FFS! It's correcting* me. I know I typed it correctly that time.

They should get an email they reply to, that will validate the email address. Always check spam box

Then point them in the direction of the new member introduction thread

Something a little odd with the uploader on just one of my machines. Normally you have the "browse" button, a "clear selection" button and and "attach this file" button.

For some reason, while trying to start a new thread, I get this:

Uploader.PNG

And when you browse to an image file, it shows the path, but then I can't upload it.

But only on a new thread. When replying to a thread (like this) it works as expected.

Most (if not all) of those were created by our resident graphic design high priestess Conelrad.
You could try creating your own. If you're not proficient with modern tech like CorelDraw 3 or whatever I have some crayons you can borrow. No brown though.
